Jeddah (OIC) � Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen expressed his grief and condolences over the loss of Juma Mohammed Abdullah al-Kaabi, ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Afghanistan, who died Wednesday of injuries he sustained in a dastardly terrorist attack in Kandahar last month.
In a letter sent to UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the OIC chief offered his condolences to the government and people of the United Arab Emirates on the passing away of Ambassador Al-Kaabi who died in the course of his noble assignment of providing assistance to people in Kandahar, defying the difficult conditions and risks of the work for which he gave his life.
Al-Othaimeen renewed the OIC's condemnation of the cowardly terrorist act which targeted the UAE diplomatic mission and Afghan citizens, affirming the principled position of the Organization that rejects all forms of crime, violence and terrorism, no matter their source or manifestation.
The secretary general expressed his confidence that these cowardly attacks will never dissuade the UAE from continuing its humanitarian efforts in any part of the world. He pointed out that the UAE has paid and continues to pay the highest price in support of the causes of the ummah in various conflict zones in the Muslim world.
